4. Contact your local branch if you’re in need of additional support or are facing financial difficulty. If you're unable to find the support you need online, you can contact your local branch directly - you'll find all the phone numbers in our branch locator. If you need to visit a branch in person please use the branch locator to check the opening hours before you set out. In our branches you may wish to check on entering to make sure you can stay safe, with some physical distancing.

6. Support from friends or family. If you need help to manage your finances you can give a trusted family or friend access to your account. You can request this by completing the form at the third party access page or, if you’d rather speak to a TSB Partner, calling your local branch.
Face coverings in our branches.
We’re following the latest government guidance. In Scotland and Wales you’re required by law to wear a face covering in our branches. In our branches in England, we ask that you consider wearing a face covering for your visit, as this does protect others, who may be feeling vulnerable. We appreciate there will be circumstances when this isn’t possible, and we’ll be mindful of when this happens. For example, you may not be able to wear a face covering due to a physical or mental illness, impairment or disability. Similarly, if you need one of our Partners to temporarily remove their face covering to help you communicate with them, we can do so. We may also ask you to temporarily remove your face covering for ID purposes.

If you take a repayment holiday you will pay more interest overall. It is important that if you can afford to make repayments, you continue to do so. We do not report any payments deferred by your repayment holiday to the credit reference agencies as being missed payments. If your account is up to date, it will continue to be reported as being up to date with payments for the duration of your repayment holiday. If your account is currently in arrears please note that the existing arrears will continue to be reported but will not reflect any deterioration due to the payment holiday. The balance reported will increase in line with the accrued interest in either case. Other factors including any existing arrears may affect your credit file or your ability to obtain credit.
Personal current account customers can now withdraw up to £500 from UK cash machines.
